And Then, Oakland Stopped Making Errors: A's 5, Dodgers 4
By far, the most entertaining part of this game was the bottom of the seventh, and not just because the Dodgers came back; it was the manner of the comeback that made it so enjoyable, for the A's managed to assemble a frame full of fielding fun:
- Jack Cust clanked a routine fly ball, allowing Orlando Hudson to reach and putting men on first and second with nobody out.
- Then, Orlando Cabrera dropped an infield fly. This had no effect on the outcome of the game, but it sure did cause Cabrera to have a big sheepish grin afterwards.
One of those games, I guess.
And an incidental congratulation to Mitch Jones, who got his first major league hit in this game, a bleeder off the glove of — I think — the second baseman, Kennedy in the eighth.
